turning empty houses into homes

Slider


At our heart, Giroscope buys and renovates empty property in west Hull to provide homes for those in housing need.

Our properties are finished to a high standard, are energy efficient and are let at affordable rents. We encourage prospective tenants to be involved in the renovation of their homes and house many of our volunteers. This helps to give people a feeling of ownership of their property.

We do not charge deposits, rent in advance or non-returnable fees; making our properties available to all. We provide security of tenure which helps to bring stability to our community.
